Sambal Udang + Ayam + Kentang +Pete goreng ( Spicy shrimp + Chicken + Potato + Sator)

I love spicy foods but I don't cook them too often because my husband doesn't really like them. One of my favorite spicy is  Sambel ayam goreng Pete. Pete in english is Sator or Stink Bean. I believe it is use commonly in South East Asia. I know Thailand and Indonesia use this bean in many of their dishes.The original recipe was given to me by an old friend's mother. It was actually a very simple dish but yet the taste is great. She called it ayam pedes (spicy chicken). You only need 3 main ingredients which are chicken breast + sambal olek + butter. Over the years, I decided to play around and add more flavor to it. It became sambel ayam goreng pete it gives a different twist in its taste. Today I decided to add shrimp + potato to this dish. Well... I had some left over shrimp from last week when I made udang goreng mentega. I didn't want to throw the shrimp away so why not give it a try...right? Here is the recipe I develop from ayam pedes to sambel ayam goreng pete + udang and potato.

1 chicken breast cut into bit size (marinate chicken w/ salt + pepper for 30mins)
2 medium size potatoes
1/2 lb of shrimp

Cut potatoes into bit sizes and fry them until golden brown. Put it aside

2 tablespoon of butter
3 tablespoon of sambal olek (depending on your taste, you can add more/less
1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of shrimp paste
1/2 tablespoon of garlic paste
1 tomato into wedges
1 bag of sator (stink beans)
Cook the chicken with butter and add all the ingredients. Let the chicken cook.
Add the shrimp + fried potatoes and 3 teaspoon of fish sauce
(do not over cook the shrimp) If the shrimps are red, then you know they are cook.

If you like it spicy, then you don't have to add tomato. I like to eat this with krupuk (Indonesian Crackers)

add shrimps + potatoes

Happy Cooking
